I'm on a web1** machine and trying to install Dropbox following these instructions: https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=lnx

configure fails with:

checking for NAUTILUS... configure: error: Package requirements (libnautilus-extension >= 2.16.0) were not met:

No package 'libnautilus-extension' found

Is there a way for me to install Dropbox?

That client is for a OS with a GUI, (which is why it requires Nautilus, a GUI file manager) try the 'Install Dropbox via command line' instructions since they will work headless.

Install apt-get install libnautilus-extension-dev (see https://github.com/dropbox/nautilus-dropbox)

I also had to install "python-docutils"

Tested Configuration: nautilus-dropbox-2015.10.28.tar Linux dvr1 4.4.16-v7+ #900 SMP Wed Aug 10 18:02:31 BST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux

That being said, none of that matters, as at the time of this post, there is no dropbox daemon for ARM, the closed source part of the sync client.
